Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Upon having the secondary shaft bearing recall completed my car started to drive very sluggish. Upon acceleration the car is very slow to accelerate and feels like it's dragging and staying in one gear too long. When finally I get to desired speed the car will slightly jerk as if it is trying to switch gears and will sometimes decelerate in speed. I have to constantly accelerate to keep car going up to speed and sometimes have to press gas pedal to floor to get up to speed. Car makes a humming sound on and off when trying to get up to speed. Dealership ran all checks and could not find any failures. I hope Honda investigates this issue. My car was running very smoothly before I took it in for recall and now it runs very rough. Very disappointing!!!

We experienced a problem in stopping at a red light on our trip back from an out of town trip last weekend. As a result of this experience my wife is now afraid to drive this car. After a few hours of highway driving, and decelerating through an exit ramp, then re-accelerating and attempting to stop at a stop light we experienced and an extremely resistant brake pedal requiring extremely hard pedal pressure and the engine seemed to continue to rev during braking. While stopped at the light the engine continued to rev abnormally. Our 30-year-old son was driving. He did not move his foot from the brake pedal for fear of what would happen. He switched into park and the engine stopped revving. While keeping his foot on the brake pedal he put the car back in drive. Then the engine seemed normal and the brake pedal pressure returned to normal. This was a disconcerting experience because it was abnormally difficult to stop, and we almost ran into a car in front of us. There were three adult witnesses to this frightening episode, my wife, our adult son, and me. We did not use the cruise control at any time during this trip. We took the vehicle to our Honda dealer. They examined the car thoroughly and could find no problems. They hypothesized that this may have been a computer error, but the systems test out fine now. Now our family is left with a car that we know has a serious safety defect, and we drive it in fear that this could happen again, hurting others or us. We also recognize the possibility that this stealth defect may be lurking to hurt others in other 2006 Honda Accord V6 cars.
